The US has charged two alleged Chinese spies with hacking defence contractors, coronavirus researchers and hundreds of other victims worldwide, according to a court filing.
Li Xiaoyu and Dong Jiazhi were described as “one of the most prolific groups of hackers” the FBI has investigated.
Authorities said the pair took part in a years-long cyber espionage campaign that stole weapon designs, drug information, and software source code.
China has repeatedly denied hacking the US and other rival powers.
